The U.S. House Ethics Committee has unanimously voted to create a subcommittee to investigate whether Congressman Don Young violated official code of conduct.
The Committee was conducting an investigation of Congressman Young based on previous work from the 111th and 112th Congresses, when it received a referral from the Department of Justice.
DOJ had conducted its own investigation into Congressman Young.
The subcommittee will examine Young’s travel expenses and costs.
The Ethics Committee is not releasing any other information at this point, and does not have a timeframe for the investigation.
A spokesman from Representative Young’s office responded to emailed questions with “no comment.”
